10. Simple it is not.

Thank you for sharing your perspective and wisdom. Thank God forgiveness is freely available for all those who are brokenhearted and contrite.

I am a good friend of a man whose college sweetheart got pregnant with twins. She decided to have an abortion, which at that time meant going out of state to get one where it was legal. He was not involved in the decision, and that was the end of the relationship. My friend experienced an overwhelming mixture of emotions: relief that he wasn't going to be a father and husband at age 18, guilt over that relief, and a broken heart over those twins he would never know. He carried an enormous burden of guilt and shame over her abortion and his part in that. It was only many years later that he was able to lay it at the foot of the cross and feel forgiven.

It's a costly choice and it hurts more than one parent quite often. Thank God for forgiveness and healing.
